Yesterday, Mayor Bloomberg and City Council Speaker Christine Quinn announced plans for the Brooklyn Navy Yard Historical Center, a 25,000 square foot facility that will seek an unspecified LEED rating. The $15 million project contemplates the renovation and expansion of the Navy Yard’s Building 92, which was originally built in 1857 as the United States Marine Corps Commandment’s residence, as well as the construction of a new structure behind the existing building. The Center will offer a variety of exhibits presenting the Navy Yard’s history, as well as community meeting space and offices for the Brooklyn Center for the Urban Environment.
We’ve written previously about the Navy Yard’s ambitious three-year, $250 million expansion plans, which include construction of the Perry Building. The 89,000 square foot project is seeking a LEED Silver rating and should be the first multi-tenant, multi-story industrial building in the U.S. to earn a Silver rating from USGBC after it opens up next June.
